Stocks: Friday's review


Asian stocks dropped  after JPMorgan Chase & Co. said it had a $2 billion trading loss and China’s industrial output grew at a slower pace, while production at Indian factories unexpectedly contracted.
Сhina’s industrial output growth slowed to 9.3% percent last month from 11.9% in March, missing economist’s estimates, according to data released today by the government. A separate report showed the country’s inflation rate was below the government’s target for a third month.
Sony Corp. tumbled 6.4% in Tokyo, heading for its lowest close since 1980, after the maker of Bravia televisions and PlayStation game consoles forecast half as much profit as analysts were expecting.
Genting Singapore Plc sank 3.6% as the theme park and casino operator posted lower first-quarter net income.
Noble Group Ltd.  lost 1.7% in Singapore after Asia’s biggest listed commodities trader posted first- quarter earnings that missed analysts’ estimates.

European stocks gained for a second day, rallying from earlier losses, as U.S. consumer confidence rose to a four-year high in May and talks continued on forming a Greek government.

In the U.S., consumer confidence rose in May to the highest level in four years, indicating falling fuel costs are helping households look past weaker employment growth.

In Greece, Evangelos Venizelos, the socialist Pasok leader, will press counterparts on a proposal for a unity government that would avert a new election.

Stocks earlier fell after Spain said it will force the country’s banks to increase provisions against losses on real estate loans by 30 billion euros ($38 billion) and will hire two auditors to gauge all the assets of lenders in the government’s fourth attempt to clean up the financial system.

A gauge of European banks was the second-worst performer of the 19 industry groups in the Stoxx 600, with Barclays Plc dropping 2.9 percent to 202.8 pence.

Credit Agricole SA, France’s third-largest bank by market value, lost 1 percent to 3.46 euros after it said first-quarter profit fell to 252 million euros from 1 billion euros a year earlier, hurt by Greek losses.

Telefonica SA, Spain’s largest phone company, declined 1.3 percent to 11.17 euros. First-quarter operating income before depreciation and amortization was 5.08 billion euros, falling short of the 5.23 billion-euro analyst estimate. Revenue in the first quarter was 15.51 billion euros, more than the average analyst estimate of 15.43 billion euros. The company reiterated its full-year targets.

A gauge of European carmakers was the best performing group in the Stoxx 600. Renault SA and Pirelli & C SpA jumped 5 percent to 33.19 euros, and 4.3 percent to 8.90 euros, respectively. Nissan Motor Co., Japan’s second-biggest automaker, forecast profit will rise to the highest in five years, helped by rising demand for its vehicles in the U.S. and China.

U.S. stocks fell, sending the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index to a two-month low, as a slump in banks driven by JPMorgan (JPM) Chase & Co.’s $2 billion trading loss overshadowed an increase in a gauge of consumer confidence.
Stocks fell as JPMorgan’s chief investment office, run by Ina Drew, 55, took flawed positions on synthetic credit securities that remain volatile and may cost an additional $1 billion this quarter or next. Concern about the financial industry overshadowed data showing consumer confidence rose in May to the highest level in four years.
Financial shares, which comprise 15 percent of the S&P 500, dropped 1.2 percent for the biggest decline among 10 industries. JPMorgan sank 9.3 percent as Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said the lender made “egregious” mistakes and trading losses were “self inflicted.” More than 216 million JPMorgan shares traded, breaking the prior one-day record set in 2008. Bank of America Corp. (BAC) and Citigroup Inc. fell at least 1.9 percent.
Nordstrom Inc. dropped 4.8 percent to $50.96. The U.S. chain with more than 100 namesake department stores posted first-quarter profit that trailed analysts’ estimates as expenses for e-commerce investments increased.
Nvidia Corp. jumped 6.4 percent to $13.21 after predicting second-quarter sales that exceeded analysts’ estimates, bolstered by demand for its new graphics chips and mobile-phone processors.
Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. gained 4.1 percent to $71.55. The company was raised to the equivalent of buy at Credit Suisse Group AG. The share-price estimate is $91.
